Our refrigerated fleet has expanded

Due to our continued expansion, our refrigerated transport fleet is set to grow yet again with the addition of a brand-new Mercedes Benz 3.5t dual temperature vehicle.


A year in review: a cool year for Courier Express

As we approach the festive season and the end of 2017, it’s great to take a look back at what has been a hugely successful year for Courier Express. Here are just some of the highlights…

Fleet investment

We started the year as we meant to go on, by significantly expanding our refrigerated fleet by investing £350,000 in eight state-of-the-art vehicles.

The new 3.5t dual temperature vehicles – all fitted with SmartCam dashboard cameras and advanced on-board temperature recording devices – allow the flexibility to make both frozen and chilled deliveries, and enabled us to improve our courier operations, while at the same time expanding further into the south of England. More on that later!

A view from the summit

It’s a very exciting time to be involved in the refrigerated distribution industry and we can expect to see huge changes in both how products are transported and the requirements from a refrigerated courier standpoint over the next decade.

As one of the UK’s leading specialist refrigerated transport providers, we have been operating in the temperature-controlled distribution sector for over 14 years.

In an interview featured in TCS&D magazine, John Lee, our managing director, discusses how Courier Express have been succeeding in today’s competitive temperature-controlled distribution industry and how we are preparing for the future.

Courier Express strengthens London service with new drivers

Due to continued success in the capital, and the recruitment of new drivers, we have significantly expanded our service offering in London and the South.

The growth allows us to increase operations across the capital and provide greater capacity for deliveries, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We now have the capability to make daily multi-drop deliveries of chilled, frozen and ambient products on a single vehicle, with deliveries made to any location within the region.


Expanded into Midlands

As one of the UK's leading providers of specialised temperature controlled transportation solutions, we have once again expanded our operational capabilities into the Midlands, offering our support services to new and existing customers in Birmingham and the surrounding areas.

This will allow Courier Express to continue to deliver refrigerated transport solutions 24 hours a day 7 days a week and will compliment there already expanding presence in the country with existing depots/operations in Manchester, Leeds, Bedford, London and Surrey.

John Lee, managing director of Courier Express said "We are delighted to have expanded once again and have vehicles operating in the Midlands.  This will allow us to support our ever increasing customer base and make sure we can continue to deliver on time every time".

Combining food samples with Foodservice multi-drop deliveries, Courier Express has been a leading provider of temperature controlled courier support throughout the UK for over 14 years.
